December starts on Monday and in spite of the two day Christmas break the NHL only has one less game then there was in November and by the time the month is done we will be 45% of the way through the season.  Atlanta, L.A., Phoenix and St. Louis play almost every other day with 15 games in the month.  The Blackhawks and Rangers at the bottom of the list are only four games behind with 11.
